Re: [PLUG] older RH yum help

=> I am trying to audit an older RHEL 5 box and make a list of the security
=> related updates it needs.
=> In newer yum versions (3.4.3-118.el7) I can get what I'm looking for with
=> the following command:
=> sudo yum updateinfo sec
=> Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, subscription-manager
=> RHSA-2014:1635 Critical/Sec.  firefox-31.2.0-3.el7_0.x86_64
=> RHSA-2014:1620 Important/Sec.
=> java-1.7.0-openjdk-1:
=> RHSA-2014:1620 Important/Sec.
=> java-1.7.0-openjdk-headless-1:
=> updateinfo list done
=> That feature isn't available in the latest yum for RHEL 5
=> (yum-3.2.22-40.el5).
=> Is there any other way to gather this information? I would like to present
=> this info to others just like that: you need to update x package because
=> of
=> y critical/important security issue.

   Maybe try grabbing the yum-security RPM from Scientific Linux 5.

At first glance it seems like that might work.
